Embrace Endless Love: Celebrating the Essence of Mother's Day


I was thinking about my mom as Mother’s Day approaches – and how I miss her very much. There are many women in my life that I have shared love with, just as I shared with my mother when she was alive. These are people who I knew from a very young age or in some way helped to shape my life. When I look at Mother's Day, it serves as a tender reminder of the love that binds us, transcending boundaries of time and distance and the many possible type of relationships that express that same type of love. It's a day when we collectively pause to honor the unwavering devotion of mothers, celebrating the profound impact they have on our lives. Further than a biological connection, this love is an energy that shapes who we are, how we feel about ourselves, nurturing us from when we were very small into adulthood. The love between a mother and child is a love that knows no bounds, selflessly giving with endless forgiving.


Mothers make countless sacrifices for their children, from the sleepless nights to moments of guidance, showing their love with a constant presence, with us through all the good and bad times - creating memories that endure long after childhood fades. Do these memories shape who you are? My mother was an example of how to love, how to express myself, how to be myself without forgoing my own values and beliefs. She taught me how to be a lady and how to stand up for myself when I needed to be strong. These examples represent love and help form much of who I am today. At the same time my mom showed me how to be independent and take on the world, capturing every exciting adventure with bravery and confidence.


I also think of Mother’s Day as a day to honor the many women who have impacted my life in ways I cannot even begin to comprehend. A mother is not someone biological to me but instead someone who has shared her heart, experiences, opinions, love, and impacted my life for the better. Mother’s Day is a day to recognize all forms of maternal love, whether from adoptive mothers, grandmothers, aunts, or other maternal figures who have played pivotal roles in our lives. I have had the honor of having women in my life generations older than me who shared their wisdom and love as well. All of these women offer love that transcends genetics and embodying the essence of nurturing care and unwavering support. It's a reminder that family is defined not only by blood but by the bonds of love and kinship that unite us.


I also think fondly of my fur babies when I think of Mother’s Day – my adventure girl Ki and animals my wonderful friends show love to each and every day. One does not need to be a parent of a child to be a mother to a loved one, animals are very much part of our hearts.




Let’s embrace all the love in our life this Mother’s Day, and express gratitude for the love we've received and in return share love with an open heart with that same compassion and selflessness. When showing unconditional love, we honor the love that binds us with our mothers and the women in our lives and the transformative power love has on our lives and the world around us.


All the love in the world,

Candice
